UNION ELECTORAL TICKET.
To the Voters of - Pennsylvania.
ACTION, OP THE I7EIOM BTATM COMMITTEE
At a meeting of the Union State Committee,
held pursuant to a call, at Coverly's Hotel, in
Harrisburg, on Itlesday _October: 7, 3846, at
o'clook--en !station, ROBERT M. PALMER, of
Schuylkill county, was Called' to - the — chair, -
andA—H, Mirrata, otAlltgherty cortn ty,_
appointed Secretary. On motion, it iras
Resolved, That it is desirable that * all the
voters of Penasylvania„,_Oppoied to:Tames Bu•
charms, the. nominee of the Cincinnati Coa•
vention, for,tbe Presidency; .should unite on
khe same Elootoral Ticket on equitable terms,
and thusinsure the defeat of the common eni3-
,my.of Americanism and Republicanism.
Resolved, That we - invite the friends of
FILLMORE RIO FREMONT in Pennsylvania, to
ntestla Maas Convention,-at the Sest,ef Jos
the-ieveral cities mid counties -of the
Commonwealth, on Wednesday, the 15th day
of October next, and choose twice as many
Delegates as. each Citj and County. is entitled
to members of , the legislature, who will , meet
in Convention at Harrisburg: on Tuesday:the
21st day of Ootob - er next . , to form an Electoral
Ticket, to be aupPored by all, the opponents
of James Buchanan. -
Resolved,--That-we_recommenfiro the Con
vention thus assembled the:formation of an
Union Electoral Ticket, upon the following
,Twenty-six Electors shall consist . of the
same names :--- the twenty-seventh elector
the Ftu.sto - netieket stiair - consist of-a--differ
eat name' from the iw.entY-seventh on the
FREMONT. ticket. For . example,: itllttain
rimaeonn and'twenty six other names selected
fteim the several Congreesional districts shall
form ono ticket ;', and Jolts . C.'FREMONT_Stid
the same twenty.sit names above referred to
shall form the other ticket. The twenty-six
Electors 'shall be pledged to oast the Etectut al
'well of the - State for Altmann Ftmatona and
Ann C. FREMONT,. respectively; precisely iu
proportion to the popular votes mist for each
ae indicated by the twenty•seventh Elector '
nu etta • ticket. • For• example, if MILLARD
FILLMORE, (or the twenty-sevyrith Elector
who represents hito,jeeceivea an equal number
of votes with Joint C. Funuonr or his repre.
frmative; then thirteen Eletitorat votes. shall'
be given for MILLARD•FILLMORE and thirteen
for Joan C. lonntotl. 0
This will enable every voter to act efficien,t.
ly against JAMES Encnatiatt -without any
sacrifice of principle. The F.!LI.M01111. - men
vote for him alone, the FREMONT men for him
alo'rie, and,yet by associated action they in
crease the chances of each. We think no one
can object to this proposition who is not in
heftrttu favor. of Ikunagan. : _
Resolved, That if the State Executive Com
mittees of the two parties unite on a joint
ticket before the meeting of this Convention,
it be recoMmended by the Convention to rail
iy their action. •
• . Resolved, That no time may be lost after
the Union Ticket shall be formed, we recom-,
mend the Delegates from the different dis
tricts to -agree on" their respective Electors
before they leave home and procure from •
them the following written pledge; .
" Should I be chosen a Presidential Elector
for the State of Pennsylvania, I hereby pledge
myself en to cast the vote of the State, tiint
MILLAIID PILLMORE and JOHN - C. FREMONT
shall receive Electoral votes equal to the 'pro
portion of popular vote's given to each, as
indicated by the 27th (or - leading) Elector on
each ticket •
Resolved, •Tit'at,kthese proceedings be pub
lished in - all of the papers in the State favora•
ble to an Union Electoral Ticket.
